  • Life Interrupted: The Unfinished Monologue

    Famous for his often manic and always humorous monologues, Gray was, by the late 1990's, in a happy marriage living in Long Island, doing yoga every day. But his life became unhinged after a devastating car accident in Ireland in 2001, which fractured his skull and crushed his hip. It sent Gray into a deep and unremitting depression.

    Where does Life Interrupted rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is definitely one of the funniest books/monologues I've ever listened to.


    What other book might you compare Life Interrupted to and why?

    I haven't read or listened to much in this genre yet.


    What about Sam Shepard’s performance did you like?

    Sam Shepard is a superb performer of Spalding Gray, and a better speaker than Shepard. This was a genius pairing.

  • Practicing the Power of Now: Teachings, Meditations, and Exercises from the Power of Now

    Practicing the Power of Now is a carefully arranged series of excerpts from the The Power of Now that directly gives us those exercises and keys. Return to those words, reflect on the words, reflect even on the space between the words and - maybe over time, maybe immediately - you'll discover something of life-changing significance.

    What made the experience of listening to Practicing the Power of Now the most enjoyable?

    Eckhart Tolle is the absolutely best of his kind, followed by Alan Watts and Ram Dass.


    Have you listened to any of Eckhart Tolle’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The Power of Now is the culmination of all of Tolle's works. I've read them all, and this one seems to distill the essence of his teaching. It's priceless.

    Angels By My Side is the second in the series of angel meditations by Jan Yoxall. The quality of the angel harmonies and uplifting music of Bryan Perez carry the listener on a heavenly journey, supporting the tranquil voice of Jan Yoxall as she guides you to connect with the archangels Michael, Chamuel, Gabriel, Raphael, Zadkiel, and Uriel. Jan's voice soothes the listener through a whole body relaxation.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I thought I might like it and was taken in to purchase; I can't imagine who the right customer would be.


    What could Jan Yoxall have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    It's a silly campfire story not a guided meditation for adults


    What didn’t you like about Jan Yoxall’s performance?

    I like music.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    That I wasted money.

  • Basic Black: The Essential Guide for Getting Ahead at Work (and in Life)

    No matter where you are in your career, Basic Black offers invaluable lessons that will help you land the job, promotion, or project you're vying for. Throughout the audiobook, Cathie offers fascinating glimpses of media and business personalities, but at the core of it are her candid, personal stories. Basic Black provides a close-up look at the keen judgment, perseverance, and optimism that have propelled Cathie Black to the top of her game.

    Ivy says: "Great Read/Good Tips"
    "Probably of more interest to women"
    Overall

    An entertaining read. It tells a story of an exceptionally bright and motivated woman who moved up the corporate ladder by being her very best. The lessons from her corporate experience aren't very relevant to a small business owner like myself. But what woman doesn't fall for a true story about a woman who wins in end because she deserves to.

  • Death by Black Hole: And Other Cosmic Quandaries

    (1125)

    Neil deGrasse Tyson has a talent for guiding readers through the mysteries of outer space with stunning clarity and almost childlike enthusiasm. This collection of his essays from Natural History magazine explores a myriad of cosmic topics. Tyson introduces us to the physics of black holes by explaining what would happen to our bodies if we fell into one; he also examines the needless friction between science and religion, and notes Earth's status as "an insignificantly small speck in the cosmos".

    Lind says: "Well written and well read"
    "Narration doesn't work for me"
    Overall

    The book is generally interesting but the narrator talks as though his audience were were in about 5th grade; too golly gee-whiz isn't this amazing for adult taste.
